of office of management and budget under george bush. senior advisor to reagan, you've been around for a long time, okay. and you've got a book here, out in paperback now called keeping the republic, saving america by trusting americans. so what do you mean by that? do i have to trust all americans? because my understanding is there are about 47% who are parasites. (cheers and applause) can we trust each other? >> yeah, sure. and you know, i think the point, stephen, is that democracy really only works if people are allowed to make their own decisions. and i think a lot of folks with perfectly good intentions believe that you or i maybe we're just victims, you know, and we need them to page decision for us. we might pick the wrong mortgage or the wrong credit card or the wrong health care. we might pick the wrong light bulb, you know. >> stephen: uh-huh. >> so you know-- . >> stephen: we might buy paint that has lead in it. we might drive cars that have lead in it. we might live next to a nuclear power plant that has these burdensome regulations on it, all of these dangerous things
-known liberal bias. first katrina tainted george bush's presidency. then isaac wiped out the first day of the republican national convention. now hurricane sandy. sandy, what kind of name is that? are you a dude storm or a lady storm? oh, big surprise, just when obama needs a boost, who shows up but a gender-ambiguous weather system, a category 5 by cure cane. (laughter) hey, hey, don't get me wrong, i don't mine you being a hemispheric scale meteorological event, but why must you be so flamboyant and in my face about it? (cheers and applause) no, i'm hurricane sandy, deal with me! now, make no mistake, folks, the hurricane agenda is to make the federal government look necessary! (laughter) well, mitt romney understands that disaster relief belongs only on the state level. as he explained when asked about his plans for fema during a primary debate. >> every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. and if you go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> stephen: r
that was think difference between al gore and george w. bush. and if republicans are not going to try to make an issue to try to deelectoralize president obama, then we have a flood here. >> jennifer: all right. thank you so much david. clearly the electoral vote looks great. the popular vote, not so much and especially if these blue voters in new jersey and new york aren't able to get to the polls, that means progressives where every you have got to vote. your vote really does matter why you ask? because the right-wing will fight his agenda at every turn. losing the popular vote gives them actually a shred of legitimacy, a leg to stand on and it's not going to matter to fox news that george bush lost the popular vote back in 2000 so bottom line even if you are in the deepest blue or deepest red, get to the polls! send in your ballots! your vote absolutely matters if you care about the president's ability to carry out his promises in his sec term. coming up bipartisan gets a much-needed shot in the arm. president obama visits new jersey with my new favorite governor, c
, fox news contributor, and former deputy assistant to president george w. bush. chris i have to admit, government is looking pretty good the last couple days here. i don't know. do you think it is having impact on voters out there? >> look, it is hard to argue that fema is not necessary. also hard to argue that fema performs much better under a democratic president than it did under republican president. melissa: you made a jump from that one. >> look, bottom line the republican platform this entire summer, government bad, government bad, government bad. melissa: right. >> if you look paul ryan budget, it desmates fema. we need fema to coordinate between the states. that's why we got rid of articles of confederation and replaced it with the constitution. so one central government could help states work out in situations like this and we're showing that it work. >> brad, i don't know maybe it is time to make the distinction government isn't necessarily bad, it is bad at a lot of different things. this is one of the thing it is good at, national security, national disaster. what do you

katrina tainted george bush's presidency. then isaac wiped out the first day of the republican national convention. now hurricane sandy. sandy, what kind of name is that? are you induced or a lady storm? big surprise, just when obama needs a boost, who shows up in a gender ambiguous weather system? a category 5 bi-hurricane. don't get me wrong, i don't mind you being a meteorological event but why must be so flam poiboya and in my face about it? no, i'm hurricane sandy. deal with me. >> all right. did you see this video yesterday? a 4-year-old girl in ft. collins, colorado, if you think you're sick of the presidential election, look to her reaction after a ride to her grocery store with her mom during which she listened to an mpr report about the campaign. >> because i'm tired of both obama and mitt romney. >> that's why you're crying? oh, it will be over soon, abby. okay? the election will be over soon, okay? >> okay. >> she speaks for so many. by the way, npr offered an apology to the little girl and said "only a few more days. only a few more days." here's a picture of little abigail
in the tidewater region. you can see it is compared with 2004 when george w. bush won the state. you can see that president bush won more of the tidewater region than did john mccain in 2008. if you were president obama and you were mitt romney, where would you focus your resources, larry? guest: you can tell by where they are visiting. romney spends a lot of time in the richmond area. he needs a big vote out of those localities, some of which voted for president obama. other various conservative localities like chesterfield county went as high as 45% for president obama in 2008. there's no way for republicans to win statewide and allow centreville to get 45% of the votes to obama. they're both campaigning in northern virginia. it is the linchpin of a statewide victory for president obama. he needs to do well in the big, growing burgeoning prince gallia county and loudoun county -- prince george county and loudoun county, as well as fairfax. yes, the two areas are small, but trees and rocks and acres don't vote, at least in most states and localities. host: what kind of the voting system is

phenomenon that has changed that. he one the state twice. in 2000 it went to george w. bush. kerrey., john care the president got a nine point victory in 2008. we really are tossups state. the polls go back and forth. it is difficult to determine who is going to win this state right now. host: is there early voting and how do the hampshire residents vote on election day? guest: there's not early voting, but there's absentee ballot. you have to sign a form saying you are not going to be available on voting day to come to the polls. traditionally, the polls are open from about 7:00 until 7:00. some locations are open until 8:00 p.m. on election day. we have one of the highest voter turnouts in the country. other statistical interesting facts are that we are one of the least taxed states in the nation. the least. we have no income tax, no sales tax. the democratic and republican candidates will pledge on that issue, saying they will not have an income tax or sales tax. our two gubernatorial candidates right now are both running on that issue. host: neil levesque, about the recount laws in the
. >> many americans have grown tired of what their country had come to represent under george w. bush. obama promised change at home and abroad. he brought an end to the war in iraq. he said u.s. combat forces would pull out of afghanistan by the end of 2014. and he promised to decimate al qaeda. >> after a fire fight they killed osama bin laden and took custody of his body. we can say to those families who have lost loved ones to al qaeda's terror, justice has been done. >> but some argue obama has not met expectations in the middle east. he's faced persistent trouble with a dominant player in the region, iran. he has focused foreign policy to make it more multilateral, part of what he calls a broader shift. aft a dade in whi we fought two wars that cost us dearly, in blood and treasure, the united states is turning our attention to the vast potential of the asia-pacific region. >> reporter: obama turned his attention at home to pushing through health care reform, something president after president had tried to do. he succeeded with what became known as obama care, the most significant ove
brooks was a deputy secretary of state under president george w. bush. nick burns, form he undersecretary for political affairs on the democratic side. and republican. good to see both of you. let me ask you your reaction first to this. to suzanne's reporting what the cia says happened. >> as a cia alumni, i'm not surprise told at the bravery of these officers. these people have been at war for many years now and their bravery is no surprise whatsoever. i'm sure they did what they felt they needed to do to protect their colleagues as well as other americans. i think we're deeply indebted to them. >> nick, ely lake from the daily beast, i know you're familiar with his reporting. he's done some fantastic reporting. he's saying the state department never requested military back-up the night of the benghazi attack. normally that would have been the responsibility of the ambassador who of course was in the heat of the moment there. so that then would have fallen to the state department to make that decision, and as we know, they could hear it in real-time. does this surprise you? >> you know,
of george bush. to the wealthy. also when president obama took office in january of 2009, we were losing over 700,000 jobs a month. 700,000 jobs a month we were losing when george bush left office and president barackwe will hear tomorrow the new jobs report, we are creating over 100,000 jobs. 5.2 million new jobs during this barack obama president's see, under 8% unemployment rate -- during this barack obama presidency. 32 months of the private sector job growth. you compare that to where we were when bush left office and the president took office. that is a remarkable improvement. that is the pathway to recovery, and president obama has beenthis is no time to change course and go back to -- we don't know what we will be getting with governor romney. he was governor of massachusetts. rounding achievement was mandatory health care for everyone -- his crowning achievement. what president's day will we get from former governor romney? -- what presidency will we get? host: we will stop there. statements. now we will turn it over to viewers, and if you can keep your answers a little shorter
baker was secretary of state and white house chief of staff for george h.w. bush. treasury secretary and white house chief of staff for ronald reagan. and undersecretary of commerce for gerald ford. he joins us from houston. hello, mr. secretary. thank you for joining us. >> thank you, bret. delighted to be with you. >> bret: your sense ofthe election and the importance this time around. >> guest: i think we will see a fairly close election. i endorsed quite some time ago governor romney because i think he is best equipped to dig us out of our fiscal and economic hole that we're in, in this country. as you mentioned in the introduction i was fortunate enough to serve not only as secretary of state but secretary of the treasury. i can tell you that the most important thing about america has been throughout its history, its economy. we can't be strong militarily, diplomatically or in any other way, politically unless we are strong economically. we now have a debt to gdp that is out of sight. we got to figure out some way to deal with that. when he was governor of massachusetts, romney
in wisconsin. they have not flooded the zone here with the candidates the way george w. bush did in 2004. but we certainly expect a close and competitive election. >> bret: joe, back in ohio, you know a lot of people talk about enthusiasm. what are you seeing in the state of ohio enthusiasm wise? >> well, before the first debate, i thought that obama had almost put this election away. but he blew the first debate. it's hard to say how the hurricane impacted that. froze the race in place. there is less enthusiasm for obama this time for sure. romney has more than mccain had in 2008. >> bret: then in north carolina, what about the machine on both sides? >> we have had 1.4 million early voters. the obama organization never closed up shot from 2008. critical in north carolina. one thing that makes north carolina interesting is that it has the largest african-american population of any of the battleground states. >> bret: last word, craig. machine in wisconsin? >> yeah, well, wisconsin is the highest turn-out state of the battlegrounds and it's very organized, engaged mobilized state as we ha
wisconsin had the most counties in the nation to vote for george bush in 2004 and then switch to barack obama in 2008. brown county was one of them. but then it swung back to republican scott walker for governor in 2010. the question is what next? st. norbert college political scientist wendy scattergood says that even in a deeply divided electorate, the wisconsin tradition of tough-minded independent voters is alive and well. >> they tend to be moderates. they do want to see bi- partisanship. they want to see people working together. and so when they get really frustrated or if their perception is that either on the right of the left that they're moving too far to the extreme, they throw them out of office. but having done that only two years ago it wouldn't surprise you that this state could flip again? yeah, absolutely. we have a tradition of being very, very closely matched between democrats and republicans, so those independents n make all the differenc >> you can canvass, phone, input data, whatever you want. >> reporter: how many persuadables are there? that's also being pursued
around george w. bush who had been in the presidency just less than a year after winning a very hotly contested and contentious election. and the country coming together. and we're seeing that to a lesser extent right now play out on the east coast of new jersey and new york. >> thank you so much. i greatly appreciate -- go ahead, i'm sorry, keith, we're almost out of time, i'm sorry. >> i think it also shows the collapse of mitt romney's support mechanism in some ways. not that chris christie's abandoning him, but you also have bob mcdonnell of virginia who praised obama, said the fema response was incredibly quick. and also, you had gm and chrysler auto executives both coming out and condemning mitt romney. so the people who should naturally be supporting mitt romney in the last week of the campaign, they're actually supporting barack obama. and that's got to hurt. >> all right. thank you so much. i really appreciate y'all coming on. we'll see you in the next few days. thank you. >>> and developing news right now that we just referenced, janet napolitano is on the ground right now i
george bush's popularity, but it wasn't until katrina came along. and i think coalesce an argument that people were making which was that, you know, government had become sort of demonized by the bush white house and the republican congress and that we were seeing the potential effects of a government that couldn't respond in an emergency and that there was a substantive basis for that, for saying that we have to have a strong infrastructure. we have to be able to respond on a large scale quickly in a crisis. so i think to your point, yes. i think that is a fair argument to make right now. i think it's a little unfair that people are saying romney basically wants to abolish fema. there's a complicated debate that has a lot to do with sending responsibilities back to the states. i've heard people that romney basically wants to do away with fema. i don't think that's quite right. >> michael, there was a tweet yesterday that amused me from @lolgop who by the way everyone should follow. he's hysterical. he said for halloween and the five days that follow, the romney campaign is dressin

to george w bush. george bush was the incumbent president with you they say ohio under reports how the candidate is doing and there is plenty of room for mitt romney's ground game to put him over-the-top in ohio and get him to the 270 needed tuesday night. bill: back in the same part of virginia where they have been for the last couple of months. the president is giving his closing argument and using colin powell to do that. what is tkpwoef governor romney's closing argument? >> the intervention of hurricane sandy interrupted his driver reas much as he wanted to. it boils on you to bold, real change. mr. obama having been reelected wasn't able to keep many of the promises that he made. many of the policies that he put forth as a candidate didn't work as president. he has been emphasizing his bayh partisanship as governor of massachusetts trying to get swing voters in this race. we have ten battleground states that mitt romney plans to visit between now and tuesday night. he'll include in them pennsylvania and wisconsin, states that had been considered in the obama column that he no

73% positive. the ratings are far higher than the government's for george w. bush after hurricane katrina. really? he is rated positively on the issue by 63% of republicans, nearly as many conservatives, 73% as liberals, [ inaudible ] that is, again almost 80%, jim. >> uh-huh. >> stephanie: the president has reached 50% nationally. and then jacki covered some of the state-by-state wisconsin eight point lead michigan -- yadda, yadda yadda. the point is many people are fired up now. ♪ ♪ forward, forward, forward ♪ ♪ we must move forward ♪ ♪ they have no reason, reason but we have the perfect plan we must move forward and vote for the best man ♪ ♪ go barack go barack we're all fired up ♪ ♪ go barack barack barack ♪ ♪ hey forward, forward, forward ♪ >> woo-hoo! >> stephanie: andra in minneapolis. we have representative gary peters. good morning, congressman. >> good morning. >> stephanie: i know you worked closely with the are the on the auto rescue right? >> absolutely. it has been a great success as you know. >> stephanie: did you do a sp
romney and ryan in ohio next tuesday, as they did for george bush in 2004 and 2000, i think that romney could take that state. stuart: now, are the evangelicals voting positively for mitt romney? because they like mitt romney? or are they voting negatively against president obama? because they don't like president obama? >> well, the good news for romney is that it's a combination of both. romney has done outreach to them. and richard land of the southern baptist convention has endorsed him. did that yesterday. he met with billy graham about three weeks ago, graham is publicly supporting him. and i'm told that his selection of paul ryan was a huge plus, because ryan is a practicing catholic, very religious, the evangelicals, like paul ryan. on the negative side, they were, they noticed this battle that the catholic church got into with the obama administration over the obamacare requirement that they provide contraceptive services in their hospitals. the evangelicals have enormous amounts of outreach to people, and they-- to hospitals and such and they saw that this was going to affect
, although we did not get that debate question, i think you would get a lot like the george w. bush administration where they nod at the problem they say they'll study it but action is not made. >> eliot: reese, we come back to you. in the first term of president obama. there was a nod. we have the waxman markie bill which was a thoughtful step forward and then silence over the next couple of years. even if president obama is re-elected and i think he will be will he put this back on the agenda, and if he does, what should the centerpiece be in the tester of climate change. >> it's got to be the center of his platform because we've wasted so much time. look there is no debate. i've been working it for a quarter of a century in the climate change arena. and anybody in our arena will tell you that we're not into change we're into rapid change. so now what we've got to do is we got to protect all of our cities whether it's the coastal cities whether it's building levies whether its getting--we've got to get into a situation here, eliot where our citizens are safe. there is a terrific a
tonight in nate silver's calculations to 78.4%. and finally, george w. bush has entered the presidential campaign. he did that today when he was dragged into it by his little brother in florida. >> do you honestly think that this president is capable of bringing people together? his entire strategy is to blame others. starting with my brother, of course. basically, he blames every possible thing, rather than having the humility to be able to reach out and define common ground. >> and the fight over who is the real friend of the auto industry continued today. >> the facts, they speak for themselves. president obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy. taxpayers still stand to lose $25 billion from the president's politically managed bankruptcy. these companies, chrysler in particular, we know their story, are now choosing to expand manufacturing overseas. these are the facts. >> remember the president talked about romnesia? well, it's contagious. congressman ryan. congressman ryan's caught it. let me tell you the facts. congressman ryan voted with us. he voted in the congress with us. >>
've seen this before. in 2000, karl rove said, george w. bush was going to win california. they spent millions and millions of dollars on advertising there. they sent bush out there, precious time, near the end of the campaign. i said, tad devine, carter, those of us involved in that campaign, so we're not spending one dime in california, and gore won the state by 1.3 million votes. the wish can't become father to the reality, which is what's going on here. >> like a team trying to talk their way to a championship instead of playing the game, so to speak. shouldn't romney have florida wrapped up? >> he should. he has a lot of -- there, he has structural advantages because he's got the governor and virtually all the statewide officials. but i think the medicare, and the republicans like to say, oh, we've countered it with this lie about a $716 billion cut under obama care, when in fact there is no such cut. there's no cut in benefits. i think that seniors have figured out two things. one, romney wants to replace medicare with voucher care. they don't like it. but isn't it the latino an
